GOP senators say Trump should not criticize pending sentences

A handful of Republican senators said Wednesday that President Trump should not weigh in on pending sentences after he criticized an earlier sentencing recommendation from the Department of Justice in the Roger Stone case. He called the Department’s recommendation of seven to nine years in prison ’very unfair,’ causing the sentence to be reduced.

Lets see 6 kids in NY just got release without any bail the day after being high and busted in possession of 7 million dollars worth of fentanyl. This old fart Stone gets swatted and 9 years for telling the corrupt congress to fuck off over the sham russia investigation. Does that sound fair to you?

From the constitution "The executive shall NEVER excercise the legislative or judicial powers to the end that it may be a government of LAWS and not men." By taking the judicial powers of convicting and sentencing Trump has turned our system of laws not men on its head. -Tom Hartmann

So what we're saying, is that lawmakers are too weak to stick to their guns when someone makes a comment online. That's weak... really weak. I don't see how this is Trump's problem.
